X5M winter wheel and tire package - pics

Winter is almost here and I have been searching for a suitable wheel/tire combo. I came pretty close to order TSW Nurburgring wheels and tires plus sensors and the total was just shy of 3K and due to the rear hub size hub centric spacers would be required.

I also looked at some OE take-offs from various forums but it would be a pain as most sellers have the summer rubber and I would need to sell the tires or hold them and then buy winter rubber. Also sellers were asking pretty high prices.

At the end of the day I decided on the following:

I'll give you hint what's in the boxes:

Cost breakdown as follows:

Dunlop Grandtrek tires - used one season - $595. ($1,100 - new) - found local.

BMW OE 298M Wheels - $408 per wheel plus tax

TPMS Sensors from - Tire Rack - $200

All in, approx $2,500 and I feel good that I have OE BMW wheels to clear the monster brakes and the proper off-sets and hub sizes. Cost was decent considering.

Sensors will be here this week and will mount shortly and update pics.

Please let me know if anyone has any questions.
